Tokens and Tipping Points

Do we have a critical mass of women leaders now? Are we at a tipping point? Will these women make an impact on issues and policies? I won't prognosticate, but I will continue to be an optimist.

It's about time

Recent growth in the number of women leaders is a welcome sign that we will soon be benefiting from a more just and evenly distributed cadre of leaders.
